The Mutant Fam collective initially organized itself around Joe Bob Briggs' Shudder program The Last Drive-In, live-tweeting on Friday nights when that show's new episodes ran during its 2020 season. For the 2020 Halloween event, viewers can follow and join the hashtag #MutantHalloween and tune in to each film's respective streaming services. Hosts chose the movies they would live-tweet with an eye towards popular but less overplayed horror classics.

The event will include contests from sponsors, and organizers from the weekly horror-themed cooking show Mutant Cafe will also be leading twitter followers of the hashtag in a cooking class on slow-cooker dinners.

The Mutant Halloween 2020 Lineup will play as follows:
